Welcome back to GRL PWR! This week’s episode is called Red Alert because we’re talking periods. Yep, periods. I’m joined by my longtime gal pal Bex Schulman to discuss the social taboo surrounding talking about our periods and menstruation in general, and we’ll also dive into a quick conversation about the “tampon tax.” (Is that even a thing? Don’t worry, we’ll break it down for you.) And then, we’re going to talk about stupid products that are gendered, like earplugs and pens and protein bars. As always, we’ll close out with talking about our media diets of the week. Hope you enjoy! Also, you can find me on twitter @SofiLaLonde if you want to get in touch about the show!
